more on “Wunderbar Together”...

From October 2018 through November 2019, the German Embassy is celebrating a year of German-American friendship, knowing that the United States and Germany are “Wunderbar Together” ― stronger as friends and partners.

With this initiative, we want to draw attention to our robust relationship, which is rooted in deep historical ties; our shared values; and our bold visions for the future. We also recall how after the end of World War II, transatlantic partnership ushered in a unique era of peace, freedom, and security. For us as Germans, the United States remains our closest partner outside Europe.

Our friendship with the United States means a lot to us, as we know it does to many Americans. This is why people are at the heart of our year of German-American friendship. Across the nation, we would like to renew the dialogue with our American friends about the importance of our relationship and how we can shape it for the future. As we face shared challenges and societies become more divided, we must build more – and stronger – bridges between our peoples.

Working with over 350 partners, we showcase our close bonds in approx. 2,000 events in all 50 states. In doing so, we paint a picture of every aspect of our German-American relations, including in fields of science, the arts, culture, language, business, and sports. We thus want to foster an exchange of ideas with all Americans, not only in New York, Washington, DC, and Los Angeles, but also in the heart of the country.
Wunderbar Together is a comprehensive and collaborative initiative funded by the German Federal Foreign Office, implemented by the Goethe-Institut, and supported by the Federation of German Industries (BDI).


We invite Americans across the country to join our celebration and tell the stories at the core of German-American friendship.
